ITB BerlinNext month, Jamaica’s Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett will be awarded the Best Tourism Minister of the Year at the ITB Berlin in Germany.

Bartlett said, “I have been made, as you know, the Caribbean’s Tourism Minister of the Year last year- and now I go to Germany on the 8th of March to get the award of the Best Tourism Minister in the World.”

“We go with great humility to ITB this year because Jamaica has made its mark,” he added.

The minister said that at the ITB Berlin, which is the world’s largest tourism trade fair, Jamaica will also be awarded as the Number One Adventure Destination.

Minister Bartlett also said that the world took note of Jamaica’s successful hosting of the Conference on Jobs and Inclusive Growth: Partnership for Sustainable Tourism, organized by the UNWTO, the Government of Jamaica, the World Bank Group and the Inter-American Development Bank at the Montego Convention Centre last November 27 to 29.

To quote Bartlett, “The conference we did, the (UNWTO) Secretary General said is the largest conference he has ever been to in tourism outside of general assembly of the UNWTO and that is a statement for Jamaica to be proud of. It took us nine months to put on a conference that most people took two years to plan and do.  And, we came in under what other conferences would cost of US$2 million or more. We were well under that!”
